Is this the maiden voyage of MSG?
Can anyone confirm or deny?

Technically no, they played the "Felt Forum" at the Garden in March of 71.

well thank you kyndly for the info.

review of set one of todays 79

the aud recording I would grade as a "C"
it leaves much to be desired (many frequencies are missing
and no low end), but we all have heard worse sound

JS- nice one out of the gate. good rendition. great
crowd response

TLEO- slow like good heroin. at some points seems all
over the place

Cassidy-fair version. you can actually hear Donna turn
in to a sheep at the end of the "here he goes and there
she starts. hear her cryyyyyyybbbbbbbbbbaaa-a-a-a-a-a-"

J-A-Row- nice upbeat tempo. solid pocket downbeats.
sounds like Jerry woke up and had his first cup of coffee

LLR- above average, especially the vocals. few rough
spots, but overall a great, emotional reading. Donna
pushes towards the end but avoids the dreaded "woman
giving birth to a cat in a blender" sound. great crowd

TennJed- fairly tame. you can tell Jerrys voice is in for
a long night, but his last solo ends up on FIRE

ElPaso- like any other standard version you have heard

Stagr- Focused yet drags a little. slow & steady wins
the race. Jerry does well with the lyrics

Passenger- you can tell Bobby and Donna are trying to
get some momentum rolling. trying a little to hard
just ok as far as first set closers go.

perhaps I will be back with a review for two
